Arman overhears his mother talking about how Aimen was almost going to get married to Arman, and after that he becomes wary of his mother’s intentions. This divide is of course increased now as Arman leaves for a new life.
Meanwhile Aimen and Saadi are still shown happy and now Aimen is about to have a baby. Their story does seem bland now in comparison to Arman who is far more interesting of a character than the two combined. Saadi especially is not sympathetic at all and the audience would definitely be on Arman’s side. Regardless, the episode was adequate but they seem to leave a lot of loose ends for many episodes without referencing them again.

Each character in the drama is definitely employed well and no one is a throw-away character; everyone serves a purpose. Now that the family itself is turning against each other things have gotten even more interesting than before but we really hope there is progression regarding Sumbul. For now, the only focus seems to be the black magic and the harms it is causing to the family but no solution is in sight. Perhaps the director is taking his sweet time building up tension but at some point we hope he moves on!

Dil Kia Karay was not the same heartwarming drama as before and largely because some of the characters have no screen power or interesting qualities to keep us watching. On the other hand Bandish is wildly exciting and has many memorable moments in each episode. So our winner this time will be Bandish!
